Marshall Shannon has more than thirty years of ministry leadership experience with eighteen years as senior pastor of a growing church. He led his church through five building programs and two relocations as the congregation grew. He was also involved in training young men for the ministry, assisting church planters, and directing mission endeavors. From 2003 to 2011 he was focused on guiding ministry leaders through their building programs. During that time he was privileged to be in hundreds of churches all over the country.
Ministry Design Concepts was started out of the burden created by the connection with these hundreds of pastors and hearing their frustrations and lack of resources to meet those frustrations. Ministry Design Concept’s mission is to provide reliable resources to meet the challenges of every day ministry. We intend to strengthen and equip leaders by connecting them with trusted industry professionals in person, in writing and through our coaching services on site and off, providing ministry audits and encouragement that can only come from someone who has been on your side of the table.
Our heart’s desire is to assist in reversing the direction of the twenty-first century church in North America where it has been stated that 80% have either reached a plateau or are in decline. The drop-out rate of pastors is also increasing at an alarming rate. We have felt compelled by God to do whatever we can to see the cause of Christ go forward robustly.
